Hear ya loud and clear - but don't it make ya yearn for the rest of these shows?

I rarely listen to whole shows anymore. I usually pick out a few songs from the 1st set with the jams from the 2nd set. 1973 has a lot of throw-away songs in the 1st set other than the jam songs (HCS, PITB, etc). By 1974 some songs are better developed like Jack Straw or Deal. Anyway, life is too short to listen to a 3 hour show- I'll take the best 80-90 minutes of a show and skip El Paso, etc.
